SAAAW and all our supporting organisations call on South Australians to reject Tammy Franks (Abortion Law Reform) bill.

This bill WILL:

• remove abortion from the protective cover of the Criminal Law Act.

One of the protections it will remove is the safeguard of Division 18 – Concealment of birth
83 – Concealment of birth
(1) Any person who, by any secret disposition of the dead body of a child, whether the child died before, at or after its birth, endeavours to conceal the birth of the child shall be guilty of an offence and liable to be imprisoned for a term not exceeding three years.

Tammy Franks (Abortion Law Reform) bill would remove the offence of failing to report a birth of a child that died before, at or after birth.
Hence it will not be required to report those babies who survive the abortion, are born alive, and are then left to die.
